Ann Wilson gives it her Heart

Ann Wilson

Ann Wilson

What woman out there does not remember belting out the lyrics of the song “Alone” somewhere at some time in their lives and for some reason?  I know I did, a lot.  From “Magic Man” to “These Dreams” to all of those rock and roll tunes that Heart singer Ann Wilson belted out over the span of the band’s career, rivaling anyone in rock with their passionate,  gut wrenching, heart pumping sound.

With a voice that is par-excellence, Ann Wilson turned 60 this past weekend.  She paved the way for female rockers to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with any male musician on the scene.  Yet Ann and Nancy Wilson always stayed in their truth as females in exile from the stereotypical female genre of the fallen angel.  Heart brought you into their songs, telling you they understand, letting you feel the lyrics like “try to understand, he’s a magic man.” You want to know who he is. You want to know why she needs him.

Heart is back in a big way.

Review from Reno

This time around they debuted three songs for their next release Red Velvet Car and while the title track seemed stock the other two tracks “WTF” and “In The Cool” will no doubt make their way onto set lists for years to come.  “WTF” scraped grunge licks against Ann’s ethereal howl and showed that their time jamming with Alice in Chains was mutually beneficial.  I wouldn’t be surprised if, in fact, the idea was born out of those performances with the fellow Seattle band and the Wilsons pulled it out recently in the wake of their reunion.  At the other end of the spectrum was “In The Cool”, a mellower tale that had just enough twang that it recalled Nanci Griffith and will fit nicely in their Lilith Fair set later this year.

Still, the crowd wanted more hits and got them as Nancy took the lead for “These Dreams”, while Ann had a few thousand join in on “Never” and ended things with everyone dancing to “Magic Man”.

They encored with Led Zeppelin’s “What Is and What Should Never Be” and left us with “Crazy on You”.  In a night full of highlights, it would be hard for anyone to eclipse their performance of “Even It Up”, which was teased by a bit of “Gimme Shelter” before hand. The Rolling Stones classic was seamlessly segued, the Wilsons giving the audience an old school mash up, punctuating their classic tune with the Stones lyric ” it’s just a shot away”.  After all these years these songs have endured because of the two talented ladies who have a bond and trust that could only be attained through sisterly love.

A close-up of the the picture above reveals the center of the winged Heart to be velvet, the black to be leather and the Red Velvet Car to be stitching.

Review: Heart show they still have what it takes at Reno concert

Ann Wilson

Ann Wilson

The Wilson sisters latest incarnation of Heart, when it comes to sound and style, is hard to separate from the Heart in most people’s past memories. The only difference is that time has added a few decades to their age, and if anything their sound has become a little richer. “Magic Man” brought most of the house to their feet, dancing and many singing to the top of their lungs. “They sound just like when they started out,” said Joe Giordeno 63, from Lodi, CA. Giordeno sat close to the stage and said he thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the concert. The crowd ended the concert with a long, standing ovation –bringing Heart back to stage for an encore of two more songs.

Cook with Fire from Wendover June 11th 2010

Here´s a flaming part of that new song on the setlist (the opening song on the Dog & Butterfly album).

YouTube Preview Image

by the shooter Grrrlfan:

The camera police were crawling around the place like a hungry flame in the dark but I managed to get this clip. Seriously, they took my friends camera at the door and tagged it, but not mine (because it was hidden). They let people with phones take pictures and that was it, but they were limiting that too. No offense to anyone for breaking the rules but this needed to be posted here. Heart is still SO amazing and awesome LIVE. This is another segment of Cook With Fire with Ann Wilson singing (still in stellar form) as an addendum the other short clips of this on youtube. And Nancy’s rig sounds so HOT too. They really were cooking with it! This show is an incredible example of rock Goddess artistry evolving and in process still. Don’t miss this tour seriously. We took a fun bus in from Salt Lake City to see this.
